Fisher Predation
« on: February 07, 2011, 07:08:55 PM »
I was curious as to the evidence or suspicion of fisher (Martes pennanti) predation on turkeys.  I live in Eastern West Virginia, and the fisher population seems to be expanding as they are not uncommon in the least.  I have found that many believe fisher are only found at higher elevations, however, this is not the case.  I've heard a weasel or mink would go right in the hen house to prey on chickens, why wouldn't a fisher go out on a tree limb to get a turkey?

I don't anything about fishers but I don't believe they are predators on turkeys.
